I lived in a village near the woods that had no playgrounds or neighborhoods. And I got to map each path and tree within a five mile circle of me. I'd safeguard any secrets it had taking refuge there when feeling sad. For finding comfort in solitude I'd play where grownups would not intrude. I’d shimmy up springy saplings tall until they bent and I’d start to fall. And gleefully descend to the ground parachuting down without a sound. Every apple tree or berry patch fell under the heading of fair catch. And each log and toadstool I'd explore was locked in my mind forevermore. The woods became my favorite place a getaway from life’s daunting pace. And I loved it when I spied a deer just standing still with nothing to fear.
